Research Interests: 

Clio Azina's research interests are focused on heat dissipative multi-materials destined for thermal management applications in power electronic components. Her research is divided in two sub-sections: the synthesis of diamond films through the use of laser-assisted combustion CVD and the synthesis of optimized composite materials through different hot-pressing techniques. At LANE lab (UNL), she works under the supervision of Pr. Yongfeng Lu on the processing and characterization of diamond films. The synthesis of the optimized composite materials takes place at the Institut de Chimie de la Matière Condensée de Bordeaux, in France under the supervision of Dr. Jean-François Silvain. At ICMCB, Clio Azina focuses on the insertion of alloying elements in the metal matrix material to induce in situ interphase creation in Cu/C composite materials. The implementation of the multi-materials require specific thermal properties which are attained through the tunability of the composite materials and the exquisite properties of diamond films.

Biography: 

Clio Azina moved to France in 2008 to pursue her secondary education in the fields of chemistry and physics. After obtaining her Diplome d'Education Universitaire Général in 2010 from the University of Rennes 1, she obtained her Bachelor of Science majoring in Physics and Chemistry in 2012 at the University of Bordeaux where she also did her Master's degree specializing in Chemistry and Physical Chemistry of Materials with a special emphasis on Inorganic materials. Clio Azina has carried out several internships in different fields of chemistry ranging from emulsions and soft matter to ceramic matrix composites. She is currently working on her PhD which is an international collaborative program between the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in the United States of America and the Institut de Chimie de la Matière Condensée de Bordeaux, in France (expected graduation: December 2017).
